In this year when it could not be held in its usual format, the Cannes Film Festival was keen to present an official selection to support some 50 films out of the more than 2.000 projects submitted.
Two of these 56 films were supported by the Tax Shelter via Belga Films Fund.
The animated film “Josep” is a co-production of the production companies Les Films d’Ici Méditerranée (France) and Lunanime (Belgium).
The film, based on real facts, tells the story of Josep Bartoli, a press cartoonist who lives and illustrates the Retirada (the post-war Spanish republican exile) in the south of France.
The animation and post-production work was carried out in the Ghent studio of the Lumière company.
The comedy “Antoinette dans les Cévennes” is a Franco-Belgian co-production by the production companies La Filmerie, Chapka Films and Belga Productions.
These two films “Cannes 2020” received support from the Belgian Tax Shelter system via Belga Films Fund and are scheduled for theatrical release in the second half of 2020.
